Know Your Customer, Get Competitive – Build A Business

February 28 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Discover why market research and other resources can boost your start up or small business to success.

• Do you know who your customers really are?

• How much they will spend on your product or service?

• Why they choose one over another? Why would they choose you over a competitor?

Having a great product isn’t enough nowadays – every business needs to know about the attitudes, behaviours and beliefs of their target customers. You need to understand what matters to your customers. And what drives them to make choices and decisions that ultimately leads to sales and customer satisfaction.

At this workshop you will learn how to access market research and other resources that can help you find the answers to all these questions and more – and it’s all been funded for you!

We’ll also show you how to find suppliers, marketing and sales leads and consider who is best to trade with. Learn how to use the Business & IP Centre Manchester’s collection of UK and global business databases (including market research and company and financial information) to:

• assess market potential

• develop a viable business plan,

• upskill you to ‘know your market’.

This workshop is part of our Build A Business in GM Libraries programme, funded by the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
